What Is Sound Healing?

What Is Sound Healing? 
Understanding the meaning of spiritual healing, and the use of sound.

Sound Healing is a branch of the meditative therapeutic arts, whose promotion and clarification is the central intention of Sunreed Instruments and The Center Of Light. The use of sound is ancient with history in every culture around the world: to intensify experience, to manifest creation, to explore the mind, transform consciousness and invoke healing. From the medicine elder drumming, chanting and rattling over his subject, to the Tibetan monks enhancing their meditations and rituals with the sounds of drums, horns, bells, and precious metal bowls, to the ancient chants in Christian Cathedrals, and the Australian aborigine playing a didgeridoo to invoke his Ancestors, sound is and has been utilized since the earliest of times to heal, instill wellness, make connection, and enrich communion.

Sound Healing can be defined as the intentional use of sound to create a vibrational environment which becomes a catalyst for healing in the physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual aspects of our being. Sound is a powerful tool, because it is vibrational in nature, and we are vibrational beings.  Indeed, the most modern science shows us that all life is vibrational in nature.  Even deep space is in fluctuation (wave movement) as is the space between your tissues and cells.  This is in line with age old mystical thought of most cultures, which often alludes to the vibrational nature of Creation. By coupling vibration with pure intention, to attune to or transform one's consciousness, we indeed have stepped into a powerful place. When vibrational sound is used to create an intentional environment, our being comes into co-resonance with that vibration. With proper awareness and intentions, vibratory sound then allows simple access to coherent emotions (examples being loving kindness, empathetic joy, bliss and compassion) to stabilize the mind and body for enriching wellness. Through aligning with the fundamental, inherent nature (quality) of the sounds being generated, and coupling that with clear intent (a focusing of awareness and 'direction,' or, 'expectation') and coherence of emotion, heightened states of awareness can be reached, and 'expectations/intentions' made manifest.  Whether we are praying for Divine intervention, or calling upon a holy being or medicine ally in the subtle realms of consciousness, it is the coupling of emotion (energy) and sound, with the principles of intent, and light, which creates the portal, or dynamic, for elemental consciousness to, move, stir and manifest, in alignment with those directions. Thus, sound is a powerful ally in the meditative arts for clarification, for transforming one’s life and for manifesting. When one understands the true nature of "healing," it offers us even more potential for wellness and growth.

Zacciah Discusses The True Meaning Of Spiritual Healing

There are many methodologies and many tools used for sound work, from highly technical medical & scientific instruments to simple ancient tools of the shamanic, indigenous, and 'wisdom' cultures of the world.  Sound is being used therapeutically throughout the human life cycle, from creating a calming and soothing atmosphere at birth, to enhanced modalities to assist in the peaceful transition at death.  Sound practices are blossoming in fields of personal growth, spiritual wellness, and yoga, as well as, in medicine, complementary and alternative medical practices, psychotherapy, physical therapy and therapeutic body work. One can find vast and varying bodies of information on the therapeutic use of music.  There is so much information, we highly recommend finding reputable dealers and educators in the field.  We have been involved in this field since the early 1970's, and have an international audience.
